VISIBILITY
5-20'

A small low will be moving through Thursday but will be pushing very little swell. With the small seas and slow tides, diving should be very good in the cove by the weekend. Boaters should keep an extra eye out for divers near the reefs and channel edges and divers always mark yourselves and area appropriately.

Visibility based on existing conditions and NOAA predicted swell and weather conditions at press time. Check up-to-date daily visibility/ conditions at the San Diego County Lifeguard info line: 619-221-8824.
